bloggers everywhere are devastated by the news. . . .

all those mocking blogposts -- lost forever.

George Will apparently opined this weekend that the Republicans have only two viable candidates for 2012 -- Tim Pawlenty and Mitch Daniels. Which is interesting since both of them are polling somewhere south of the Easter Bunny at the moment.

As someone else said, this is the most wide-open Republican contest since Wendell Wilkie got the nomination in 1940. And we all remember what happened to Wendell Wilkie.

Okay, so none of us really remember what happened to Wendell Wilkie. He got 45% of the vote as was buried in a Franklin Roosevelt landslide.

I just like saying "Wendell Wilkie." Especially when you say it like the gremlin in the old World War II era Bugs Bunny cartoon.

"Are -- are you the gremlin?"

"It ain't Vendell Vilkie!"

George Will's always doing that -- apparently opining, i mean. Well at least that's what I hear. Last time I actually read him he was spitting all over Jerry Garcia's grave, the same as he did to Alan's when Alan Ginsburg died. So whatever George says it is, I say it aint.

You got a good point there. A couple of months ago he wrote about how Rick Santorum was perfectly positioned to catch lightning in a bottle and then a couple of days after that didn't so much as mention him when listing serious candidates for the GOP nomination. I think sometimes Will, who I believe recently turned 70, just spices up press releases from Republican operatives with a few quotes from Ovid and Edmund Burke, but otherwise spends all his time watching baseball on cable.
